Albufeira 2 Reef Dives

In our centre we pride ourselves on personalising dive trips for the clients, we are a family run business catering not for the masses but the individuals. We take a max of 6 clients on the boat and have 2-3 guides / Instructors per boat to guide our trip. If you are a holiday diver just diving once a year we will spend extra time, helping assemble equipment, briefings and explaining anything about the local area. We protect the reefs and can show you the underwater life at it´s best during a relaxed dive. If you are experience we will buddy you with someone of the same level or ourselves or stay down longer for you to take photos or just get the most out of your days diving.

One of my best experience of life. Came to Albufeira, Portugal to get my PADI (open water diver certification) and the INDIGO divers center was the best choice. The instructors Jo and Steve taught me the basis and guided me throughout the whole course. They had patience and more important they made sure I was able to execute, safely, each step required to become a PADI certified. They have about 50 years of combined diving experience and are very knowledgeable and professional. At INDIGO, all was about diving and having fun while doing it. I highly recommend this place. Special thanks to the rest of the Team that helped me achieve my goal, Ingrid and Annina.

Wow - is there anything better than doing a 2-tank dive on your birthday - woohoo! Many thanks to Ingrid, Steve and Jo for a perfect day! Started off with a much needed refresher in the pool as it had been about 4 years then out we went! It was a beautiful day and although the vis wasn't the best from a recent storm it was still absolutely wonderful to be blowing bubbles again - and to see that octopus! Wonderful crew....fun fellow divers....it was perfect in all ways! I definitely won't be waiting 4 years between dives again! Many thanks to Indigo Divers - cheers from Canada!

Had two excellent recreational dives with Indigo Divers at Albufeira, Portugal. Instructors were very experienced and provided clear instructions and briefings pre-dive. Equipment and gear all worked well and I had no issues with any of it. Truly one of the really good dive centres out there; you cannot go wrong with Indigo! Also, really enjoyed my first experience of seeing a live octopus up close! (pictures below).

Huge thank you to Jo, Steve and Ingrid who took us out for a dive on 21/09/2020. I wanted my partner to experience the world under the Ocean and to open her eyes to new adventure. I have dived before but hadn’t been for 4 years and needed to feed the urge to explore the local reefs and with Indigo they didn’t disappoint. You could tell from the very beginning that everything was carefully planned and they adhered to the Government Guidelines of the COVID-19 outbreak. We felt very safe and looked after. My partner was a little nervous but through the help of Steve, the instructor, she completed her first ever dive. So congratulations to her for that. I don’t think it will be her only dive (hurray for me). Although the visibility wasn’t fantastic due to a storm that ripped things up a couple of days prior to diving, we still saw quite a bit of marine life from Octopus, parrot Fish to Nudibranch and countless little fish whose names I can’t remember. Indigo really know their stuff and I would recommend anyone with whatever experience you have to dive with them. Jo briefed us on the dive sites with great knowledge of the area, Steve led us around the reef and pointed out things of interest and Ingrid helped keep things going on the boat while we were in the water. Excellent experience had and would definitely dive with them again when the visibility gets better.

We did multiple dives with Jo and Steve. The first two dives were a little bit cold so after that i rented one of their suits. We brought our own gear with us. Because we did mutilple dives they took us to different dives sites when possible. Steve and Jo found all the great stuff for my underwater photography. We also did two wreck dives with them at Lagos. Those wrecks were amazing. We will be back again!
